HAVE WE LOST SIGHT OF GOD?

The angels, the archangels, the elder’s and all the heavenly hosts cry out day and night, “Holy, Holy, Holy, the Lord God the Almighty, who was and is and is to come” (Revelation 4:8).

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah also spoke of a vision of heaven and heard, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3).

We sing it in our hymns, “Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty!…God in three persons, blessed Trinity” (UMH #64).

We even recite it in our communion liturgy “Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest” (UMH 13).

Yet we live our lives and speak of God in such a way that we regard Him with thin sentimentality, if we mention God at all. How have we become so casual in our approach to the God of all creation.

Have we grown so comfortable that we have lost sight of God?

Even the Governor of New York – who professes to be a Christian – recently stated: “Our behavior has stopped the spread of the virus. God did not stop the spread of the virus.” And in case it was considered a misguided stroke of bad judgment, or that he really didn’t mean what he said, he later said this: “The number is down because we brought the number down. God did not do that. Fate did not do that. Destiny did not do that. A lot of pain and suffering did that.”

It is time that we who call ourselves Christian stand up and give due praise to the God of all creation. The God of heaven and earth. The God who loves us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for us on a cross.

Yes, the Holy Spirit is referred to as “The Comforter” but that is NOT a call for us to become comfortable. “For indeed our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29).

It is time for us to turn back to God!

This month we are looking at questions people have about God. These are important questions that warrant proper answers. Let us all prayerfully consider our relationship with God and Give God the respect, awe, and love that he deserves.

 

Thank You and God Bless,
